Bouchard Finlayson Hannibal 2011

Bouchard Finlayson Hannibal 2011

These grapes ripened well to produce friendly wild berry flavours with opulent, gentle tannins providing long and harmonious finish!

My best description of Hannibal 2011 is that it is the kind of wine which one pulls the cork on while cooking only to discover the bottle is empty before sitting down to dinner. It is perfectly elegant with sufficient "leather" in its taste profile – a reminder of its Italian links.

in the vineyard : The excitement of the Hannibal blend lies in the indulgence of pitching French and Italian grape varieties together. Arguably the world’s best varieties with Sangiovese established as the principle cultivar (52%) in this mix.

in the cellar : All Barrel matured for sixteen months after fermenting the different grapes separately. This vintage comprises Sangiovese 52%, Pinot noir 13%, Shiraz 13%, Mouvedre 13%, Nebbiolo 6% and Barbera 4%.
